In my IIS I have a connection string that is inherited from some where. Do anybody know where it came from because in the conection string is
DataDirectory for some reason points to inetsrv in system32. I am thinking that it is not suppose to. How should I configure this? It is causing me a error when I want to access the database via database manager in IIS
An attempt to attach an auto-named database for file C:\windows\system32\inetsrv \aspnetdb.mdf failed. A database with the same name exists, or specified file cannot be opened, or it is located on UNC share.
and I think it is the reason why my website does not work because it is the only connection string I have that connects to my local server. I can add a connections string but the website does not inherit like it does this one.

Gest guess is you already have a database attached from another app. Could also be you are running a user instance of SQLExpress.
Take a look at:
These are ASP.NET issues by the way, not IIS.

I think that the databse was not inherited from another app, becuase a seperate app would not inherit that database either unless specified. Am I right? This database is in the conneciton sting of my localhost server where all my other site automatically
inherits this sconneciton string. Yet when I added a cusotm connection string to the server none of the other apps inherits this this new connecitons string that added.
